“The raisins are optional, I prefer not to add them in, the mixture is just as good without them! You can use ground beef or pork in place of the chicken or turkey. This is a great weekend snack to serve while watching sports, or to serve at a small get together. For less heat adjust the jalapeno peppers and dried chili flakes to taste, we like extreme spice so I use 2 large jalapenos and about 1 tablespoon of dried chili flakes!”
